Washington (CNN) -- The Pentagon and U.S. Central Command are updating military plans to strike Iran's nuclear sites, preparing up-to-date options for the president in the event he decides to take such action, an Obama administration official told CNN Sunday.

The effort has been underway for several weeks and comes as there is growing concern across the administration's national security team that the president needs fresh options ready for his approval if he were to decide on a military strik

The official did not want to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the work being conducted.

This is more than likely due in part to McCain's speech to Congress last week in which he stated that we can not continue to threaten Iran if we have no intention of following through and/or no concrete plans in place for what to do if Iran continues to push forth with their nuclear program.

I will say this though:
Anything that happens here forth militarily is all on Obama. He certainly can't claim to have inherited this mess, but rather has exasperated it nicely.
